    ATC70 Pullstarter

    The 1981-1985 Honda ATC 70's pull starters have now been added to the discontinued list of Honda parts. This forced me to rebuild a few of them and I'd like to share a bit of information that I have found through the process.... I saw a NOS one go for $250 on ebay.

    Here is the one I reconditioned.Internal parts are still available







    Discontinued part.







    Brand new one.







    Comparison.

    Re: ATC70 Pullstarter

    The pulley is still available....$33... and is one of the culprits of the pull starter not working properly.

    Re: ATC70 Pullstarter

    The pulley contains the spring which is not that hard to wind.

    Re: ATC70 Pullstarter

    The pull starter dogs fit into the cage mounted on the flywheel.The pull starter has a separate mounting cover.

    tmas







    The dogs come out and mesh into the cage as the pull starter is pulled.







    Dogs in.

    Re: ATC70 Pullstarter

    The rope ties into the pulley and the spring does not have to be removed to change the rope if your rope breaks.

    tmas







    The rope knot is tied into this bracket.

    Re: ATC70 Pullstarter

    The hole in the original dog is used for this clip. The new dogs do not have the hole so the clip can't be reused.

    Looks like some gang symbol...
